Comment: Although an Apple fan and mac user, I think this is definitely the phone I am going for.
The only really annoying thing about the review is the way Flora shakes her hand (and the phone) with almost every syllable uttered !! Otherwise, very useful information.
Good: Best smart phone on the market, love the design.
Bad: I am not a big fan of the plastic case, I hope you can buy a new one in the future.
Comment: I really love this phone! I was waiting for the iphone 5 as I am due an upgrade. However this phone has really made me have second thoughts. If the rumours are true and the iphone will not be released until September, then I am likely going to get this phone.
As I don't wait too long, plus the iphone 4 is a year old now. I really don't want to buy an iphone 4 on a two year contract. As by the time contract finished the phone would be 3 years old.
I am so impressed with this phone by Samsung. The only thing that puts me off Android is the app market is not good as Apple's.
Comment: The phone looks great, thinner, lighter, faster AND HD! I don't know how those people can fit so much into the worlds thinnest smartphone.
Comment: after months research i almost decided to buy xperia arc, now am confused again. Thats the thing about electronic gadgets if you want the best, you would probably wait for ever.
Bad: MORE POWER
Comment: THIS GOT POWER WE NEED POWER, MORE POWER :))))))))))))))))))
Good: screen resolution, 4.3 inch screen, android 4.3 OS, 8MP camera, superfast processor
Bad: it is expensive
Comment: It is the best mobile you can get but far too expensive.
Bad: It's expensive
Comment: good phone but on the downside expensive
Good: Screen resolutions are always the good thing about samsung phones.
Bad: Widgets, no seconday camera function.
Comment: Samsung might have to work harder on the applications department in order to be on par with Apple.
Hopefully, the next generation of Galaxy phones would have secondary cameras that can be used to take photos, not just video calls.
Good: Beautiful screen, Android, fast hardware ensures zippy experience
Bad: Too similar to predecessor
Comment: Certainly a very attractive phone - they've taken the iPhone design and improved it tenfold. The software & UI in the Galaxy S was clean, quick and beautiful and surely this will be even better.
I can't see a better phone on offer at the moment
